Summer Break!!

I am so glad it is summer break! I have had a long and somewhat challenging year! Last week was officially my first week off... and I did nothing!! So today seemed like a great day to get back into stamping and creating. Thanks to Papertrey's Make it Monday #69 challenge, I was able to easily put this one together quickly. However, trying to figure out my new Photoshop CS6 is more work than I want to put in! What kind of photo editing software are you using?

I used one of my favorite go to sets from Papertrey Ink: Life. I happened to have some fun crinkly brown ribbon from leftover chocolate packaging on my table... I just had to use it! Here's a close up view of my card:

Here is the inspiration sketch I used:

Splitcoaststampers and Papertrey Ink have been my go to places for inspiration back into the crafting world. Now that I have been away for a while from the crafting scene, I wonder what are some great places for inspiration? What blogs or challenges do you like to visit??


  1. I love this gorgeous card, Gwen! The light and dark stamping of your images is divine, and I love how you have broken the sentiment into light on dark and dark on light as well!! Fabulous embellishments with that beautiful button and gathered ribbon!

  2. Wauw, this is super gorgeous!! I love the way you placed the ribbon and the button! And your stamping is gorgeous! Fabulus take on the sketch!!!
    Hugs, Wendy
